    lol @ SaturnReturn! What an awesome response!

    On the downside - I find that I get my best times by being extremely gentle with the airbreaks, anything more than a light brush on Phantom tends to result in me having to overcompensate - Now the problem with the Dualshock 3 is that the airbreak triggers push in with much less resistance than the original controllers - thus it's much more of a struggle to be subtle with the airbreaks, and more often than not I end up with either all or nothing.

    So yes - for me the Dualshock 3 is a mixed bag.
    Ive got to agree with this. After breaking it in for a few days, its certainly got a bit better doing BRs. Not 100% but definitely better. And the triggers are also weird at first, but I got used to them pretty quick. TBH ive always pressed them hard but briefly when cornering rather than slightly as necessary so resistance wasnt really a big issue.

    Plazarou - those Gioteck triggers look interesting, thanks - I'll definitely check them out.

    Pirahpac - lol - I don't understand your fingers either - I'm sure it makes more sense if you can see the screen at the same time.

    Youarefubar - Glad somebody agrees about the Duelshock being better for Barrelrolls ... as regards the brakes, I now seem to be developing a different airbreaking style more suited to the less resistant triggers - I'd love to know more about people's exact cornering techniques ... thing is that it's so reflexive that I hardly know what I'm doing myself ( like Pirahpac was saying I think ).

    Do you always play with the mini USB cable connected?

    That might explain why your percentage of successful BR's are so high and how you seem to be able to do them at places others find very hard,if not impossible

    I've always been of the opinion that the wireless connection doesn't have a 100% success rate,or there is a slight lag inherent between the controller and the console.

    Funny Pirhapac!

    I found it slightly disturbing that I could pretty much guess where on the track you were just by looking at the steering input. I need a break methinks

    I'm not sure of that, mate ! I almost always play without the wire and i let the paddle discharge to the max. I don't encounter problem to perform br even with low charge (offline of course ).

    Never considered that before. Might try with the controller plugged in now.

    I play with USB plugged in 99% of the time. BRs are still total epic fail. Rewrite the code completely, find another way to make them work, or don't include them in the next game FFS. Enough of the dodgy inputs. We're losing the very definition of "WipeOut" if we keep random things like this in...
    Precision...

    I tend to waggle it all wrong such as left-right-right when I'm not really into the
    game such as being frustrated because of few .01 seconds in a time trial.

    I noticed this just a little while ago when I try to waggle the combo too fast.

    And on Chenghou I have a theory. It also might be because of the drop height you get to thinking you don't need to press the combo that fast since there's
    so much time. And because of that the combo is too slow thus ship not rolling.
